VSLangProj Namespace

The VSLangProj namespace represents the project-specific automation model objects for Visual Basic and Visual C#.

Classes

BuildManagerEventsClass

Refer to BuildManagerEvents for this functionality. Do not instantiate from this class.

ImportsEventsClass

Refer to ImportsEvents for this functionality. Do not instantiate from this class.

PrjBrowseObjectCATID

The PrjBrowseObjectCATID enumeration is used for extension of the properties that appear in the Properties window for projects and project items. Extension is typically used by ISVs to extend the automation interface. Developers may add or delete items from the Properties window, by using the appropriate Category ID (CATID) to extend the automation interface. For more information, see Spectrum of Visual Studio Automation.

PrjCATID

Used for automation extension of the Project object.

PrjKind

Indicates the type of the Project object.

BuildManager

Used by third-party developers to manage the portable executable (PE) files produced by running custom tools.

BuildManagerEvents

Provides access to the events of the BuildManager. Use this object for functionality and refer to BuildManagerEventsClass for this object’s documentation.

FileProperties

Represents the various properties of the specified project file, such as its name, size, the date it was created and last modified, and so forth. This type provides internal-only access to file properties. For more information, see Accessing Project Type Specific Project, Project Item, and Configuration Properties.

FolderProperties

This type provides internal-only access to file properties. For more information, see Accessing Project Type Specific Project, Project Item, and Configuration Properties.

Imports

Contains the collection of all project imports for a Visual Basic project. The specified imports statements are passed directly to the compiler and apply to all the files in the project.

ImportsEvents

Provides access to events that are raised when a project Imports statement is added to or deleted from a Visual Basic project. Use this object for functionality and refer to ImportsEventsClass for this object’s documentation.

ProjectConfigurationProperties

This type provides internal-only access to file properties. For more information, see Accessing Project Type Specific Project, Project Item, and Configuration Properties.

ProjectProperties

This type provides internal-only access to file properties. For more information, see Accessing Project Type Specific Project, Project Item, and Configuration Properties.

Reference

Represents one reference in the project. Including a reference in a project allows you to use any of the public members contained in the reference. Projects may include references to other .NET projects, .NET assemblies, and COM objects.

References

Contains all the references to external components in a Visual Basic or C# project.

ReferencesEvents

Provides access to events that are raised by adding, deleting, or changing project references. Use this object for functionality and refer to ReferencesEventsClass for this object’s documentation.

SVsProjectItem
VSProject

Contains the information specific to a Visual Basic or C# project. It is returned by the Object object when the project is a Visual Basic or Visual C# project.

VSProjectEvents

Provides access to events of the References, Imports, and BuildManager objects.

VSProjectItem

Contains the information specific to a Visual Basic or C# project item. It is returned by the Object of the ProjectItem object when the project is a Visual Basic or C# project.

WebSettings

Represents the settings for Web projects.

Enums

prjBuildAction

Specifies a value indicating the type of build action for the current project item.

prjCompare

Specifies the default string comparison method for a project.

prjCopyProjectOption

This enumeration is used by the CopyProject(String, String, prjCopyProjectOption, String, String) to determine which project files are copied when the project is copied.

prjExecCommand

Microsoft Internal Use Only.

prjProjectType

Used by the ProjectType. This enumeration lists the two types of projects, local and Web.

prjReferenceType

Indicates whether a Reference is a .NET Framework assembly or a COM component.

prjScriptLanguage

Used by the DefaultClientScript. Two script languages are supported, ECMAScript (JScript, JavaScript) and VBScript.

Remarks

While Visual Studio offers a core project automation model, it is, by its nature, generic and language-agnostic so as to accommodate all languages in Visual Studio. The VSLangProj assemblies, however, offer a richer project automation model, allowing programmatic access to language-specific features not offered in the core project model.

There are currently three versions of VSLangProj:
